Transportation, however, remains scarce and irregular. Many people have to rely on hitching rides with delivery trucks, people passing through, and a public transport system that is unreliable and infrequent. This can have very costly health consequences. Further, getting in and out of Mabule to referral clinics in town and city centers can be both a financial and health burden. SOCOBA aims to provide inexpensive-no questions asked-transportation to clinics, hospitals, and neighboring home villages for its beneficiaries.
